Brittney Griner is an icon in the making, pushing boundaries, redefining the sport and creating visibility for those who have not yet found their voice. With a 6’8” frame, 88” wingspan and fun, adventure loving spirit, BG doesn’t just break the mold – BG shatters it. One of the all-time greatest basketball players, BG transcends the game as a flashpoint for a new generation of athletes who write their own definitions.
On the court, BG is smooth and relentless, showcasing a rare blend of size and skill. Off the court, she is a loveable humanitarian, committed to family and a more inclusive society, where kindness and compassion rule. BG is committed to helping everyone feel safe and reach their true potential and works closely with organizations like the Phoenix Rescue Mission, It Gets Better Project and a range of LGBTQ+ focused service organizations.
HEART AND SOLE SHOE DRIVE
In partnership with the Phoenix Mercury and the Phoenix Rescue Mission, BG established the Heart and Sole Shoe Drive, which collects shoes for members of the community experiencing homelessness. Now in its fourth year, BG regularly joins the Mission to distribute shoes, water, and hygiene products to people in need.
